FRUGAL FAMILY FUN...

Why $pend a fortune to watch a movie.  Below are great way$ to cut co$t...

Frugal Family Fun: 11 Ways to Watch Movies for Less
You can buy, borrow, stream, or rent movies nowadays. You can even go to a real theater and watch movies. But if you're not careful, all that movie watching can take an out-sized bite from your budget.
Here, from cheapest to most expensive, are 11 ways to watch movies in the 21st century:
* Borrow from the library. It's free, and you'd be surprised how many titles they have.
* Swap with friends. Another freebie! If you're the organizing type, get together a movie swap at work or playgroup. The more subtle types will just start giving movies away, hoping someone gets the hint and reciprocates.
* Free viewings. Community centers and other groups often show movies for free. Look in the newspaper or on the library bulletin board, for starters.
* Garage sales and thrift shops. Almost every garage sale has a box of movies for sale. If you still have a VHS player, you might find free movies! If you turn around and sell them at your own garage later, score this one as free.
* Amazon Prime streaming. For $79, you can stream from among thousands of movies and TV shows on any whim for a full year. That's $1.52 per week - hard to beat.
* Hulu. Watch TV shows and movies on your computer for free. For a couple of bucks per week, you can expand your selection and watch movies on game consoles and practically every electronic device you carry around. Hulu programming does contain commercials.
* Video rental stores. They still exist - and they're not a bad deal compared to buying movies or going to the theater. Their prices have come down, and some of them let you watch as many movies as you want for a monthly fee.
* Netflix or other DVD-by-mail companies. The attraction of Netflix is that you never pay late fees. However, if you're paying by the month and you have the same DVD on the counter the whole time, it might as well be a late fee.
* Buy it new. For less than $20, you can buy a movie - at the grocery store if you want. It's still not a bad deal compared to the next higher option.
* Cable. Here's where it starts getting pricier. $65 to $75 per month is an average bill, and the deluxe package can be twice that. And the temptation is to "get your money's worth" by watching too much. It's the cruise ship buffet line of video watching.
* Theaters. We hope you shop around, use coupons, and get the matinee pricing. Give yourself extra credit if you fill the kids up so they can't eat another bite before you go to the theater, and you find a Tuesday night $2 special. (Some of our kids never knew you could eat in a theater.) Going out to the movies is still an event. And the less often you indulge in it, the bigger that event will seem

GOT HAM?? AWE$OME BROWN $UGAR RUB..



Tonight I made a ham for dinner...I cut the ham in half, so now I have an extra dinner! YAY ME
I wanted to add something like a brown sugar rub and I searched for a recipe and I actually had all the ingredients on hand. Which is rare for me

The recipe is as follows:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Mix together brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, mustard powder, onion powder, and pepper in a bowl until well blended. Makes enough rub to cover one 3 to 5 pound ham. To be sure sugars form a crust, do not cover the ham during cooking. If not using immediately, store in an airtight tin.
  2. RECIPE FOUND HERE 


I didn't have pumpkin spice on hand...hehehe so I used 
1tsp of cinnamon
1tsp of nutmeg...

I was pleasantly surprised because my very, very, picky 12 year old daughter ate 2 pieces...
When I make again I will decrease the amount of nutmeg.  It was a little overpowering for me...
Give it a try and let me know your thoughts!



Enjoy
If anyone has any crock pot recipes I could use some that are EASY!

HOMEWORK FUN....SPELLING....


SPELLING WORDS FUN

When my oldest daughter was younger she struggled with memorizing spelling words.  I knew in order to help her I needed to make it FUN.   I wanted her to learn good study habits from a young age, but also retain the information.  I have learned that when you are interested in what you are studying it's easier to remember. Being that she wasn't interested because she had difficulties I needed to come up with something lets just say GOOFY...to help her....

At that time I babysat(6 kids) and had a very large ABC rug....I thought I could use this to help her study her spelling words.  I didn't know how my idea would work but I thought it couldn't hurt...

The rug was similiar to the above picture....

At first my daughter looked at me like I was CRAZY.  I convienced her to try it.....

As I called out each word for her to spell she would have to JUMP on each letter as she SPELLED out the word.
Sometimes we made the game a little harder she would have to jump on one foot and if the other foot touched the ground before she was finished spelling the word...she would have to start over again....which is repetition, but she thought she was just having FUN!

After many weeks of jumping and spelling.....
Her spelling grades improved and another mother asked me to help her daughter improve her spelling also.

My daughter who is now 21 is attending college and studying Elementary Education.  To this day she remembers jumping and spelling her spelling words....

CHOCOLATE MUDD CAKE.....YUMMM

ALL I CAN SAY IS THIS LOOKS AMAZING...
I HAVE TO ADD THIS TO MY TO MAKE LIST,
 
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate (or 1/3 cup chocolate chips)
  • 1 cup sugar (2/3 cup & 1/3 cup, added separately)
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1/3 cup Dutch-processed cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 11/2 cups hot water
  • Whipped cream or ice cream

Instructions
  1. Coat the inside of a 2 1/2- to 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. (Note: the cake's cooking time and final appearance will vary depending on your crock's size.)
  2. Whisk together the flour and baking powder in a medium bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave or over a pan of simmering water and mix well.
  3. Whisk in the 2/3 cup of sugar, 3 tablespoons of cocoa, vanilla extract, salt, milk, and egg yolk. Add the flour mixture and stir until thoroughly mixed.
  4. Pour the batter into the slow cooker and spread it evenly. In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining sugar, cocoa, and hot water until the sugar is dissolved.
  5. Pour the mixture over the batter in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 1 to 2 hours, depending on the size of the crock pot.
  6. Even when done, the cake will be very moist and floating on a layer of molten chocolate, but you'll know it's ready when nearly all of the cake is set and the edges begin to pull away from the sides of the pot. (As you check, try not to let the condensed steam from the lid drip onto the cake.)
  7. When it's done, turn off the power and remove the lid. Let it cool for 25 minutes, then serve it in bowls topped with whipped cream or ice cream. Makes 6 to 8 servings

DONT PAY FOR GIFT BAGS...DIY--MAKE THEM!

Little gift bags out of newspaper. Plus, it's a great way to recycle! Pick a good section of your paper (the comics are always fun)

Cleaning off my desk always gets my brain working...Today I recycled tons of old newspapers.  I thought....hummmm  wonder what I could do with these for crafts....(paper mache) fun and messy!  Then I saw the comics and thought I could turn these into gift bags....These would be great for in a pinch birthday bag.

I found a great place that explains step by step...

Enjoy and Have fun!



PVA glue. This is a bookmaker's glue and can be found at most art supply stores. Elmer's will work as well.
Newspaper. For the example bags above, I used a Japanese paper that measured (when folded) 11 1/2" wide and 15" tall, and the comics of my regular paper, which were folded and cut down to 11" by 11".
A hole punch and a grommet setter or a Clikit tool. I found my Clikit tool at a discount store. If you google "Clikit" there are several entries.
Grommets
Ribbon or string
